25 January 2024

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 4 invites the public to participate in a virtual open house regarding proposed safety improvements along U.S. 224 between Market Street (State Route 7) and Tiffany Boulevard in Boardman Township, Mahoning County. A pre-recorded presentation will be made available to provide an overview of the project history, present the recommended alternative and receive valuable input from the public and local stakeholders. ODOT is seeking public input regarding the recommended alternatives.

The proposed project is currently in the environmental engineering phase which includes environmental studies and preliminary plan development.  Right-of-way acquisition is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2024, followed by construction in the spring of 2026.

The virtual open house will be available January 29 through March 1, 2024. Project information and materials (e.g., presentation, handout, exhibits, comment form) may be requested from the contact below or can be viewed on the project website at the following link: publicinput.com/mah224#tab-40818.

We invite the public to visit the project website, view the presentation, review the available project information and the recommended alternatives, and submit your questions or comments via email, on the project website, or by direct contact at the address or phone number below. Comments received by March 1, 2024, will be compiled, replied to, and posted on the project website.
